Making sense of the latest rumors about Apple’s looming AR and Mixed Reality headsets

Summary

In a DSCC paper, analysts believe Apple’s Mixed Reality headset will feature an “innovative three-display configuration”, with two micro OLED 4K displays and another AMOLED panel for low-resolution peripheral vision. Not only that, but analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently gave a bold statement saying that Apple plans to replace the iPhone with AR technology in ten years. For example, in the same report that Kuo talks about the processor of this headset, the analyst predicts that it will be equipped with two Sony 4K micro OLED displays, which indicates that it could also support VR. Apart from all of these reports, another indication that Apple is indeed readying its entry in a new product category is the fact that the company hired Meta’s AR communications lead by the end of 2021. With all of that in mind, expect Apple to introduce a pricey Mixed Reality headset, weighing around 350 grams, with a premium look, lots of cameras, LiDAR sensor, and features that any other competitor has yet.
